You're in the next room sleeping
And I'm shouting out a song for you
I shouldn't wake you over the furnace
But I just wrote a song
One you would love, let me know
So dream a good one tonight
I'll listen to the bad ones when they come
Cut open my ear till I hear every word
Every turn of your tongue
I will tighten my grip

And no one can tell even if I fell
100 stories straight down, down, down
No one can tell even if I fell
100 stories down

I was getting bored with hurting myself
If you fall down enough
Well, soon enough you will find hell
It can't be as
As pretty as
We hoped it would be
It's not even warm there
Not even 10 degrees

This bed is too big to sleep in
And I'm dying just to feel you breathe
You couldn't see across the ocean
But I was turning over 'till the vampires sleep
So dream a good one tonight
I'll listen to the bad ones when they come
Cut open my ear till I hear every word
Every turn of your tongue
I will tighten my grip

No one can tell even if I fell
100 stories straight down, down, down
No one can tell even if I fell
100 stories down

I was getting bored with hurting myself
If you fall down enough
Well, soon enough you will find hell
It can't be as
As pretty as
You hoped it would be
It's not even warm here
Not even 10 degrees

Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
Dream a good one tonight
I was getting bored with hurting myself
(so dream a good one tonight)
I was getting bored with hurting myself
(so dream a good one tonight)
I was getting bored with hurting myself
(so dream a good one tonight)
I was getting bored with hurting myself
